lately my mail
has been trying to hurt me
bank account  
screaming for mercy
my children
scream for food
im screaming too
off screen and out of view
giving fury  
where fury is due
to pieces of me too shattered to glue
but the question remains
how much can you do?
how much can you take?
where will you bend,
and where will you break?
